SOURCE: I am replacing the driver's side power window

I was able to complete the installation, but with modifications. The essential part of the process is being careful with the removal of the existing motor and taking care to remove the regulator hub assembly without moving it or having the wires un-spool. The only other issue was the rubber gromments used during the factory installation of the window motor. The metal thread collar within the gromments fuses to the bolt making it nearly impossible to remove the fasterners. The trick is to cut the rubber grommet away and fabricate your own rubber-ized isolation fasteners. I was able to do this with some plumbing washers, new screws and fender plates held in place with nylock nuts. This was not too diffucult a project, just needed to excercise care.

    1999 A6. Driver's side window goes down but then

    there are many reasons , but the most common is a worn and week motor or a ground problem giving too low voltage , or the window guides are worn too thin . best thing to do is put a voltage meter on the motor and roll up the window , look for voltage increases or voltage drop .

    How to install driver side window regulator

    1. Take door panel off by prying off with srew driver moldings for outside mirror,around lock,and door handle, then pry up counsel for power locks, windows, and mirror adjustment and disconnect plugs. Remove three screws located behind arm rest handle, inside where counsel was removed, and bottom middle of door panel. Lift panel and pull slighlty towards you. Disconnect courtesy light, and wire to speaker. This may sound like alot but it goes pretty fast. 2. Peel away plastic and loosen window glass clamps (explaination from above, which are accessable when window is in up position). 3. Disconnect wire to motor, and remove 6 bolts holding guide rails and motor. Lift rails slightly to release from little hangers, which come in handy when putting new one in. 4. You should be able to remove entire window regulator at this point. Surprisingly the window stayed in up position when regulator was removed. 5. Before installing new regulator loosen window glass clamps. Install new by first setting guides in place by using the little hangers. Bolt guides and motor, temporarily connect power window switch and carefully raise window regulator until clamps are resting in place under window glass, tighten clamps. Test before putting panel back on.

    Power window on driver side door sticks

    Yes the door's rubber window guide becomes dry and needs to be lubricated with a special silicone lubricant, go to Napa and ask for this silicone lube then apply it to the grooves located around the inner perimiter of the door window frame, sometimes it is neccessary to remove the door panel to access the lower window guides, if you remove the door panel becareful when removing clips along the lower part of panel you can damage the panel using a screw driver the sell a tool for this it looks like a screwdriver with a Y shape at the end. If this doesn't remidy the problem you more than likely have a worn out window motor that needs replacement.

    This is a common problem with driver side window. Its just a wear and tear problem. Don't go to the dealership, the Regulator will cost you over $230.
